Design Adrian Van Hooydonk & BMW Group Designworks USA, 2005 Anodized aluminum, ABS or wood laminate Made in USA by Emeco
In 2003, Gregg’s colleague, Harvey Goldson, bought an old Emeco chair on ebay, and left it in Gregg’s office without explanation. Gregg contacted Adrian van Hooydonk at BMW Designworks in Southern California, and Van Hooydonk designed the 2005 version of this classic chair, with a new, more ‘dynamic’ stance and an injection-molded plastic seat and back.
The new chair is an update of an original Emeco chair made for Navy hospitals from 1951. The lower cost chairs and stools have durable ABS seats and backs in seven colors and a brushed/ anodized frame that stacks six high. White and silver chairs and stools can be used indoors or out.
